Time to change my front brake pads as per dealer last visit.
Got Brembo pads for all corners from Amazon UK.
I am asking for your opinion about them as I reckon the ones on the right side of picture are fakes.The Brembo inscription is riveted on pads body.
What do you think?

I see that TEXTAR is stamped into the top left of each pad's steel backing plate which is interesting as, when others have posted pictures of their BREMBO pads in the past, it used to be PAGID that was stamped there.

That set me thinking that I was either giving out duff info as I have always understood that BREMBO don't make any friction material themselves, or that you have indeed got fakes.

However, doing a bit more research and looking to see who owns TEXTAR and PAGID, I find that both companies are part of TMDFriction - see the bottom of this page:

Our History | TMD Corporate

So, unless those pads really are fakes and someone is using the wrong manufacturer's name, it would seem that BREMBO pads are now being made to their specification by either TEXTAR or PAGID and possibly, MINTEX or DON too!

What concerns me is that a company as Brembo instead of write all infos straight on the pad body as left ones,it bolts a piece of plastic/fabric(I do not exacly what it is) with its name using what it looks like kind of cheap rivets.

Those may be anti-squeak/noise isolation plates.
